Description

Penny End Hinges

A pair of our rustic iron cottage style hinges rounded penny end T hinges. Matching cottage fixing screws are provided and the traditional hinge plate is pre-drilled for easy fixing. This pair of antique hinges are 6 inches in length and ideally, the old hinge should cover approximately over half the width of the door.

Size

The rectangular black hinge leaf measures 10.5cm by 1.7 cm and the decorative hinge leaf is 12.5cm long. The head of the penny measures 3cm wide. Our rustic wrought iron cottage style hinges are all hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a beeswax coating. All our hand-forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.

Forging Our Hinges

All of our hinges are hand forged. We have been fortunate to find a blacksmith’s shop that now makes these hinges for us. We searched for a long time before finding this highly skilled artisan. The hinges are hand forged in the traditional way on the anvil. The finished hinge will show these forging marks. Once each hinge has been forged it has to be dressed. To dress the hinge it is first hand cleaned and hand polished. Once this stage has been compleated the hinge is dipped in natural beeswax.

Beeswax

By treating each hinge with beeswax it gives the iron better qualities. Firstly the wax adheres to the surface of the iron by soaking into the tiny pores on the surface. This helps the wax to form a sealing coat over the hinge thus preventing excessive rust. The second main thing the wax does for the hinge is that it will even out the colour. The hinge will now be mainly black but may have areas of golden brown.

A full set of fixing screws will be provided with your order.
